Is There a "Get Terminal Name with Device Prefix" Function in LabVIEW NXG?

Updated Feb 13, 2019

Reported In

Software

  • LabVIEW NXG

Driver

  • NI-DAQmx

Issue Details

I have used the "Get Terminal Name with Device Prefix" VI in LabVIEW. Is it there a LabVIEW NXG version of this function?

Solution

The Get Terminal Name with Device Prefix function interacts with the DAQmx driver. This function is part of the DAQmx examples that get installed with the DAQmx support for LabVIEW NXG. In newer versions of DAQmx, it was renamed to Get Full Terminal Name.
In case you installed DAQmx after LabVIEW NXG, you can follow these steps to access the function:
  1. Open NXG 
  2. Go to Help » Examples
  3. Navigate to: Hardware Input and Output » NI-DAQmx » Programmatic Configuration » DAQmx Synchronization
  4. Confirm a name for the demo project now being created
  5. You'll find Get Terminal Name with Device Prefix.gvi respecticely Get Full Terminal Name.gvi under subVIs in the pane normally on the left.

Additional Information

DAQmx is fully compatible with LabVIEW NXG since DAQmx 17.0 and LabVIEW NXG 1.0, see NI-DAQmx and LabVIEW NXG Compatibility.
